The prestigious rankings rank institutions that prepare artists for careers in creative media and entertainment.

The rankings are calculated on the quality of student portfolios submitted from each institution. These can include video or still examples of their work.

In the latest Rookies rankings, the University of Hertfordshire has also ranked the best 2D animation school in the UK (2nd in the world), top in the UK for production excellence in 2D animation (7th in the world), and the second-best game design and development school in the UK (12th in the world).

Phil Healey, Dean of the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire, said:

“It has been an exciting few weeks for animation and games in the School of Creative Arts, following our success in the TIGA Awards and now coupled with this year’s Rookies rankings. It is a testament to our hard-working students and the world-class teaching colleagues provide at Herts. Our diverse and dedicated students produce breath-taking work and we’re proud to see so many of our graduates working across the industry, including for leading global creative organisations like Disney and Nintendo.”
